My grandparents came to town for my daughter’s first birthday this weekend. I didn’t get to visit with them much but when they came to see me, they brought me a few boxes of treasures.
One of those boxes included some vintage tablecloths, including some made by my grandmother. The box also included my great grandmother’s apron.
Boy do I feel blessed to have that. I absolutely love treasures that are passed down from other family members.
She also brought a Rubbermaid tote full of vintage milk glass. My grandmother, my mom, my aunt and I all collect vintage milk glass.
I have packed away my milk glass for a long time now, but recently a favorite blogger of mine who collects ironstone said something that stuck with me . She talked about how she’d rather use her pretties and enjoy them than pack them away.
I don’t often use my milk glass for food serving, but I do use it to decorate. Here are some ways I have incorporated milk glass into my Décor:
A milk glass pitcher full of flowers in the middle of my table.
Pumpkins, cattails and milk glass, OH MY!!
I collected some lovely seasonal Décor Ideas on Pinterest this week :
How about milk glass and Christmas ornaments? I’m loving it!
…and how about these gorgeous roses in these milk glass vases? Very shabby chic.
